Check It out now:!

The trailer starts with a smashing entrance of the  Josh team i.e Sara (Raai Laxmi), Harsh(Vin Rana) and Oscar (Zain Imam) with a mutual goal of winning the race course at an upcoming auction and gaining control over the game. Everything goes according to their plan until Aditya (Aftab Shivdasani) enters and tunes into building terror by changing the plot of the game. However, to unveil Aditya’s mysterious past, everyone digs into his dark secrets. Meanwhile, Aditya being the most experienced player in the game, focuses on taking revenge from the Josh team. In this race to win the game, the bet is on jealousy, revenge, and deceit. The question is, are the players ready to take the risk of their life? Or will the players be stung by each-others rattling moves?

Aftab Shivdasani shares, “The hunger games have finally begun. We have been looking forward for the trailer to come out and show our fans a glimpse of the second season. It is going to be even more exhilarating with stronger characters and rattling mind games. My character Aditya will come back to seek revenge turning the game upside down. He is strong and leads the pack fearlessly. I am extremely anxious and excited at the same time for the season to drop on ZEE5 on 16th October and looking forward to how the fans will react to the show. I hope they sit back and enjoy the show.”

Third character poster from “ITI – Can You Solve Your Own Murder” out: Featuring Taher Shabbir

After releasing two character posters featuring Vivek Anand Oberoi as Prabhu Singh and Rajeev Sen as Rohit Vardhan, Mandiraa Entertainment and Oberoi Mega Entertainment the makers of “ITI – Can You Solve Your Own Murder”, reveal their third character in the film through a new poster. Taher Shabbir, who got critical acclaim for his roles in Guilty and Naam Shabana, features on the poster as Pratyush Parashar.

The film’s tagline, “Can You Solve Your Own Murder” forms a never-heard-before premise in the film. The first collaboration between Mandiraa Entertainment and Vivek Anand Oberoi’s Oberoi Mega Entertainment, this sleek whodunit thriller is written and directed by Vishal Mishra and creatively backed by Prerna V Arora. Legend Rajesh Roshan would be composing music for the film.

Here’s the character poster, teasing us with his character in the film.

Talking about the casting of Taher, director Vishal Mishra said, “Taher Shabbir was our first choice for this role. I’ve seen his work in Fan, Manikarnika, Naam Shabana and Guilty and have always took notice of his performance. He’s a perfect fit to play Pratyush Parashar, the character that’s got many layers.”

Prerana V Arora said, “I wanted this film to have an interesting ensemble cast and every actor to fit his role perfectly. I want to shape vision of my director as closely as I can any casting actors who perfectly fit yet stand out in their respective roles. Taher  brings a lot of freshness as well as an acclaimed body of work to our film.”

Vivek Anand Oberoi elaborated, “Right casting is very important these days, since actors evoke the dynamics that evolve in the film. This film, being a mystery, requires actors who can bring not only their own craft to their layered characterisation but also surprise you with their performances. Taher is one such actor and he fits Pratyush’s role perfectly.”

Taher Shabbir said, “Being part of a mystery thriller has always been one of my dreams. I’m so glad that this early in my career, I get to play such an interesting character in a concept-driven, unique thriller. For this, I’m grateful to Mandiraa Entertainment, Vivek Anand Oberoi, Prerna V Arora, Oberoi Mega Entertainment and Vishal Mishraji. Being a part of this talented team makes this opportunity all the more special and I’m sure this movie is going to be a game changer!”

The film revolves around a woman who is racing against time to solve her own murder. Intricately woven, it has an ensemble of characters intertwined in their own struggles. It is expected to go on floors this year and release early next year.

ITI is presented by Mandiraa Entertainment and Oberoi Mega Entertainment, and produced by Vivek Anand Oberoi, Girish Johar, Kussum Arora, Reshabh D Saraf, Keyur Pandya and Sanjeet S. Yermal.
